With names like, ‘thunder spreader ‘and ‘fire spreader’, the stag beetle is associated with the darker aspects of culture. According to British folklore, Stag Beetles summoned thunder and lightning storms, which scared the wits out of medieval peasants who also believed that they flew around with hot coals in their jaws setting fire to buildings!
